Gloucester Community Garden concept grows.

Community feedback is sought on a proposal to establish a community garden at Gloucester.

A local community group has developed plans for a community-based garden that will produce fruit, vegetables and herbs, as well as other plants for the community’s benefit.

Council supports the use of land at Gloucester District Park on Boundary Street, adjacent to the north western tennis court boundary fence, to be the site of the garden.

We hope that this garden will be a meeting place, a welcoming place, somewhere community members of all ages, abilities and backgrounds can go and work together,” said MidCoast Council’s Manager of Community Spaces, Recreation and Trades, Daniel Aldridge.

The community group has already done a fantastic job bringing this vision to life and now it’s up to the wider community to get involved and tell us what they think.”

A range of community consultation is underway to find out how community members feel about the proposal and two information sessions have been organised at Gloucester Council Chambers on Friday 6 November and Thursday 26 November to learn more about the project, as well as a pop-up session at Gloucester Farmers Market on 14 November.

If the proposal is successful, interested people can register their interest to be a part of the group at the bottom of the survey.

An image of the proposed plans for the site as well as more information can be found on Council’s website.
